While in residence at Osgoode, Bergeron plans to engage students in a project that will culminate in the creation of a series of publicly displayed portraits depicting black citizens who have been carded by Toronto Police. This project will raise questions around the biased application of law, the legal and human rights of individuals, and how the law shapes access to and safety in our public spaces. This project will provide an opportunity for students to explore the legal issues inherent to Street Art.
